Curbio Named Winner at NAR's Second Annual iOi Summit Pitch Battle
SEATTLE (August 22, 2019) -- The National Association of Realtors announced that Curbio, a presale renovation technology startup company, won the Pitch Battle at NAR's second annual Innovation, Opportunity & Investment (iOi) Summit in Seattle. Second Century Ventures, NAR's strategic investment arm, hosted the pitch battle which featured a select group of startups focused on developing innovative solutions for the commercial and residential real estate marketplaces. Contestants presented live demos in front of venture capitalists, technology executives, innovators, brokers and real estate professionals to pitch their ideas and help define the future of real estate. Fourteen finalists competed in the battle live in front of conference attendees and thousands of virtual attendees through livestream. Curbio's pitch was delivered by Vice President of Marketing, Rikki Rogers, who was one of eight women in the battle. Curbio's solution allows agents to drive return on investment for the seller through presale renovation, with the goal of helping the homeowner sell quickly and for the best price possible. Curbio does not get paid until the property completes settlement. Rogers successfully quipped with the judges to illustrate Curbio's innovative model for success. "Our goal with this competition is to identify and showcase concepts poised to help drive the real estate industry forward," said NAR CEO Bob Goldberg. "This year's finalists are among the best new technology startups for real estate. The iOi Summit Pitch Battle is an exceptional platform for these startups to share their ideas not only with the judges, but also with potential investors, clients and Realtors®." As the victor – aside from the notable exposure – Curbio also received a prize package which includes $15,000, official Pitch Battle trophy, a booth at 2019 Realtors® Conference & Expo, with an exclusive opportunity to deliver a live demonstration in the NAR Booth Theatre, a forthcoming article featured in Realtor® Magazine and an additional story written by RISMedia.

BoxBrownie Wins Pitch Battle; KW Labs Win Hackathon at NAR's iOi Summit
WASHINGTON (August 30, 2018) — The National Association of Realtors® announced that BoxBrownie, an on-demand photo editing service for real estate, and KW Labs, Keller Williams in-house software development arm, won the pitch battle and hackathon, respectively, at NAR's inaugural Investment, Opportunity & Innovation Summit in San Francisco. Software developers, data scientists, designers, marketers and real estate professionals from across the country competed in an artificial intelligence hackathon and a startup pitch battle. Second Century Ventures, NAR's strategic investment arm, hosted the pitch battle between a select group of technology startups focused on real estate. Contestants presented live demos in front of venture capitalists, chief technology officers, chief information officers, technology innovators, brokers and real estate professionals to share ideas and help define the future of real estate. "The vision of Second Century Ventures is to define and deliver the future of the real estate industry by being a catalyst for new technologies, new opportunities, and new talent. The pitch battle and hackathon were an exercise that broadens that vision and brings the leading minds in technology, investors and Realtors® to the table to share ideas and bring the future of real estate into focus," said NAR CEO Bob Goldberg. The pitch battle participants were tasked with delivering a demonstration of a product that will help real estate companies, agents or consumers and outline solutions for the venture capitalists, executives and brokers in the audience. BoxBrownie received the winner-takes-all prize of $15,000. BoxBrownie's demonstration focused on their wide range of services for Realtors® who want to showcase their products with professional photos. KW Labs, the winner of the hackathon, built an app that allows an agent to make a video of a property on a walkthrough. While making the video, the phone will identify the type of room and features in the room, then convert to text, and create a web page with links from auto-generated images that will appear in the video. Hackathon contestants gathered to build innovative products that leverage artificial intelligence to serve Realtors® and determine the impact on the future of real estate. "The iOi hackathon is a cutting-edge collaborative exercise that allowed NAR to work with technology experts to examine, embrace, leverage and be part of the change that surrounds our industry. The hackathon is a piece of my larger strategy as CEO to bring tech firms that many consider to be disruptors under the tent as innovators, and turn them into advocates for our members," said Goldberg. Some example problems that teams explored were ways to improve how agents serve their clients, opportunities for improving home search in the real estate industry and ways agents can maximize their marketing opportunities with less effort. Teams started building their ideas virtually on August 1 and were judged on five different criteria: use of the provided APIs, creativity, functionality, practicality and user experience. The hackathon data set providers included benutech, CRMLS, enodo, Foursquare, Lyrebird, MRED, restb.ai, RPR, SOLARIA labs, the San Francisco Association of Realtors® and TLC engine. The National Association of Realtors®, is America's largest trade association, representing 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Real Estate Data, Management and Tech Leaders to Meet in Chicago
Morrisville, NC – March 29, 2016 – Responsible for standardizing more than 1,000 different real estate data sources for property information across the U.S., the Real Estate Standards Organization, or RESO, is attracting some of the brightest and best minds in the real estate industry to its Spring Conference at the Hotel Monaco Chicago, April 19-21, 2016 to tackle crucial issues to help streamline technology in the real estate industry. Some 200 leaders from the real estate brokerage, Multiple Listing Services (MLSs), real estate technology providers and more will convene face-to-face to help create and advance new standards for the U.S. real estate industry, as well as showcase new innovative technology solutions that address the industry's most pressing technology problems and challenges. "We are on the dawn of a new generation of technology-driven solutions that will improve the home buying and selling experience for consumers with what is arguably the most complex transaction in most people's lives," says Jeremy Crawford, Executive Director of RESO. "Data standards may sound boring, but data standards are the missing link to making buying and selling property faster, more efficient, more intelligent and simply better for everyone involved." Crawford noted that among the tough topics the RESO Spring Conference will take on includes hearing from leading brokerages about the challenges they face with the disparate business rules that every MLS has, the variations with IDX (shared property data) and lack of consistency in data display requirements for property listings. "Identifying the business pain points that real estate brokerages wrestle with is key for their MLS to provide the tech solutions they really need," Crawford says. Top brokerage panelists leading this discussion include Rajeev Sajja, Vice President of Digital Innovation at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, REALTORS® with offices in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey; Glenn S. Phillips, CEO of Lake Home Realty of Birmingham, Alabama; John Grelyak, Director, Digital Technology of Chicago-based Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®; Tom Weiss-Lehman, the Data Production Specialist from Seattle-based Redfin; and Shaun York, Executive Director of Technology for Homes.com. Among the advance technology solutions that will be showcased at the RESO Spring Conference includes: Heather Petersen, Docusign and Executive Director for the xDTM Standard Association will discuss the xDTM Standard, "The Transaction Management Standard for an Open Digital World," and how raising the quality bar on digital transactions benefits the real estate industry. Homespotter will showcase editing MLS listings through the Homespotter Mobile app, which combines fingerprint-based security and the RESO RETS update standard. BoomTown will demonstrate its Internet Tracking, lead gen and predictive analytics technologies. MLSListings will demonstrate its Business Rule Engine, which allows users to leverage listing maintenance through multiple interfaces and ensure listing edits follow MLS business rules. Software Incubator will present Using PropMix.io platform to propel RESO maturity model: with Longitudinal Property Records™, insights as a service, and NLP. A newly added highlight of the conference is a Certification Workshop-plus Tech Bar, a place where Crawford describes conference attendees can work directly with RESO certification staff on implementation and certification of the RESO Data Dictionary and the new RESO Web API, which is mandated by NAR for adoption by June 30, 2016. "Tech Bar attendees can even run tests onsite, get immediate feedback and meet in person with many of the industry's leading MLS technology firms," Crawford says, which are scheduled to include FBS – the creators of Flexmls, Black Knight, Rapattoni and SEI, Inc. (Navica MLS). He notes that technologists will also test the latest single sign on (SSO) methods across products with the new RESO Web API, and during the event, attendees can get a free special cocktail at the "Tech Bar," which is sponsored by Software Incubator and PropMix.io. The RESO Spring Conference is expected to hit a record attendance this year for a Spring Conference with more than 200 top real estate industry executives expected to attend the April 19-21 event in Chicago. The mobile app for the RESO Spring Conference is available by downloading "Guidebook" in the App stores for Google and Apple, and searching for "RESO." Online registration information is at http://www.reso.org/spring-mtg.

Leading RE Makes it Rain Awards
  A couple of weeks ago we attended the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World's (LRE) Annual Conference in Vegas. It was a remarkable lineup with a lot of valuable takeaways. LRE is made up of an incredible list of over 600 top real estate companies. Our network aligns very closely with theirs. We both work only with independent brokerages. Additionally, we restrict that to only allow one member per market. It is therefore no surprise that the majority of our members also belong to LRE. We typically host a party to celebrate with our existing members as well as potential ones who are attending the conference. This year our party was at La Cave and was a great success. Potential members had the chance to meet us and a small representation of our team, as well as discuss our platform and its benefits with our existing members. Our party is early in the week, giving ourselves the best chance for a good turnout (given this is Vegas after all and the week is like a marathon). Little did we know our network had a lot more to celebrate than we knew... LRE hosts an awards ceremony every year to close the week. They nominate four candidates per category. The Enterprise Network members won multiple awards in many categories respectively. We would like to take a moment to mention those that revolve around technology. In this case, they literally swept the award ceremony. Here are some of the notable victories: Most Innovative Brokerage Award Winner: Kentwood Real Estate - Greenwood Village, CO Best Interactivity Award Winner: Clark Realty Corporation - Kailua Kona, HI Best Mobile Site Award Winner: Baird and Warner - Chicago, IL Nominee: Houlihan Lawrence Real Estate - Rye Brook, NY Best Property Search Award Winner: Lyon Real Estate - Sacramento, CA Nominee: Wright Kingdom Real Estate - Boulder, CO Best Visual Design Award Winner: Heritage Texas Properties - Houston, TX Nominee: John R. Wood Properties - Naples, FL Here is the most amazing part... When it came to the Best Overall Website Award, our network took all the nominations: Clark Realty Corporation - Kailua Kona, HI John R. Wood Properties - Naples, FL Lyon Real Estate - Sacramento, CA ...with the winner announced as Wright Kingdom Real Estate (WKRE) from Boulder in our home state of Colorado. WKRE is one of our first members; they believed in us before we could really call ourselves a network. We have both come a long way since then and we are ecstatic for their team who put a lot of effort into their site's redesign. Enormous THANK YOUs to all our members for believing in us and for being part of this great network. Every single nomination and win of each brokerage is also a collective win for the network itself. We would also like to thank LRE for validating all our hard work. What a great organization they are! All our love goes to every single boojer who without all the talent oozing from your fast typing fingers, without all the late nights, weekends and devotion to our members, there would be far less remarkable sites out there. This is a win for all of us. What a great start to 2015! To view the original post, visit the Enterprise Network blog.

The summits will also include a Power Broker Roundtable panel presented by RISMedia. Realtor.com® will serve as the exclusive portal sponsor for the 2015 Realtor® Broker Summits. "After the overwhelming success of last year's Broker Summit, we knew we needed to expand in 2015," said Polychron. "Not only will NAR offer three Broker Summits this year and increase attendee capacity at each, but one will be dedicated entirely to technology." The Broker Tech Edge Summit in Seattle will be done in collaboration with NAR's Tech Edge program and e-PRO®, a certification to help Realtors® stay up-to-date on the latest technology trends that can help them grow their business and better serve their clients.

Visit Homes.com at Inman Connect & Succeed in 2013!
If you're going to be at Inman Connect New York this week, make sure to stop by the Homes.com booth to connect with our tech expert Joe Sesso to learn how to grow your real estate business in 2013 by partnering with us and allowing us to analyze your social media presence. Joe Sesso will be speaking at the beginning of two agent focused sessions on Thursday – don't miss "Turning Data into Business" from 2:55-3:40 pm and "Video, Photos, and Words: How to Master the Medium That's Right for You" from 3:45 – 4:30 pm. Right after Joe's intro, catch our very own Andy Woolley on an informative panel, "Overcoming the MLS Hurdle: How to Get the Data and Get to Market." Did you know that in a recent report by RealTrends, Homes.com ranked number one above all other competing real estate sites for delivering monthly referrals? Furthermore, 91% of all those who visit Homes.com in search of their next home purchase do not currently have a relationship with a real estate professional. This means that, as a partner with Homes.com, you'll be exposed to extensive opportunities to capture leads and cultivate new business.

1parkplace CEO and Congressman Duncan Hunter to Lead Real Estate and Housing Symposium
San Diego, CA – The Real Estate and Housing Symposium scheduled at the Marriott Marina on April 21, 2011 kicks off a national campaign to “Bring Back Our U.S. Housing Market.” The goal of this FREE public symposium is to initiate a citizen led forum focusing on a “Blueprint for Housing Reform,” to assist our Congress on reforms that could help revitalize the real estate and housing industry.   The event is being led by Steve Hundley, CEO of 1parkplace, Inc., (www.1parkplace.com) a national real estate marketing firm based in San Diego.  Hundley has made it his personal mission to educate every citizen in America on what they can do to restore our housing market.   “Correcting our housing market means more money for communities, higher property values, increased jobs created and improved consumer confidence,” said Hundley.   Hundley has enlisted the support of honorary co-chairperson, Congressman Duncan Hunter. “The idea of presenting strategies from leaders in our real estate industry to our elected officials in every level of government to advocate meaningful reform is an important step, and I’m proud to be a part of it,” said Hunter.  “The participants at this symposium are industry professionals who are in the trenches everyday with their clients.”   The “Blueprint for Housing Reform” will address three key areas of recovery:   1. Now issues – reforms that will address the urgency of solving our short sale, mortgage modification and REO process in order to remove as much inventory off the market as quickly as possible. 2. Tomorrow issues – addressing the landslide of regulations that are destined to decimate our real estate and housing industry.  Much of the new legislation concentrates on restricting lending to the point of putting a choke hold on recovery. 3. Restoring confidence in America and our housing market – A robust real estate and housing market creates millions of jobs.  We need to do everything possible to restore confidence in every neighborhood.   Hundley has sought the advice and ideas of many experts in our industry in preparation and will be gaining insight on these relevant issues.  “There are a lot of great ideas out there, we just need to streamline them and make them simple for people to understand how the issues impact them,” says Hundley.   In conversation with NAR president Ron Phipps last week, he said “NAR needs the most help in reaching the “average agent and the consumer”. “I translate the average agent to be the one who does a great job listing and selling homes but tunes out of politics and governmental issues.  However, they are the most strategic gateway for reaching consumers since they are very connected with their community.” Hundley adds.   1parkplace expert advisors include: Allan Dalton – one of the National Association of Realtors' 25 most influential people and former CEO of REALTOR.com David Cabot – Executive Vice President of Prudential California Realty, Berkshire Hathaway's, Home Services division's largest U.S. real estate operation. Rick Hoffman – President and COO of Coldwell Banker, San Diego and Inland Empire, owned by Realogy, Inc, America's largest real estate brokerage operation. Gregg Neuman – CEO of the Neuman and Neuman Real Estate Team – one of San Diego's most active and experienced real estate professionals. Marla Shepard – President and CEO of California Coast Credit Union and Chairperson of the California Credit Union League governmental affairs committee Ruben Bareles – President of the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce Victor Lund – co-Founder of the WavGroup – the industry's leading research firm Rick Snyder – Former president of the San Diego Association of REALTORS and a member of SDAR's Hall of Fame for his long time governmental affairs advocacy. Bonnie Dumanis – The San Diego County District Attorney along with her assistant DA in the area of white collar crime and real estate fraud. More experts are being added to our roster as we prepare for the symposium.   “Ultimately,” said Hundley, “we hope to create momentum that educates communities via Real Estate Town Halls across America – where we can reach and teach REALTORS and Americans in every neighborhood on what they can do to bring back our housing market.    Take our online poll now or RSVP to attend at www.BringBackOurHousing.org.  The event is FREE to the public.  Space is limited. ### ABOUT 1parkplace Headquartered in San Diego California, 1parkplace was established in 1994 by Steve Hundley, a real estate agent from California's Silicon Valley.  As founder and CEO Hundley leveraged his previous 10-year career, starting back in 1984, to develop and deploy the comprehensive real estate marketing and contact management solutions 1parkplace offers today. Since its beginnings, 1parkplace has catapulted its clients in the real estate and financial services sector to leading market positions. The key for the company is to stay ahead of the technological curve and keep its members on the cutting edge of the real estate technology wave.
